Last week i went away for 5 days,did quite a bit of walking,went on a zip wire,paddled in sea. I was fine. I have Scleroderma but didnt think i had it bad. Breathless sometimes.achy sometimes.But thats probs because im on Hydroxychloroquine and tramadol,keeps it at bay.
Friday morning started with a sore throat,thought nothing of it. Over the weekend it has just got worse. Cant swallow without lots of pain,hence hardly eating.Tired out,weak. Headache.This morning my lower back was killing me,but has eased a bit now. Cant bend properly to get dressed.Hot sweats.My jaw bone hurts.Im coughing.
Im thinking now,is this my first real flare? I dont know whether i need to see a doc,being on immuno-suppressant? Or do i just rest till it goes? I still need to walk my dog,and ive got work tomorrow and im loathe to start taking time off with this thing.im sure that will come in the future.
Any replies appreciated
